Many people who are dealing with lines, wrinkles and skin folds are seeking treatment options that do not involve surgery and the risks and lengthy downtimes that go along with it. Fortunately, recent innovations in cosmetic medicine mean that there are numerous choices available to those looking for minimally-invasive techniques that still offer impressive results. Fortunately, you can get similar results as you would with a facelift with non-surgical means. Patients in Fresno can schedule a consultation with our office to learn about their options.
Dermal fillers offer a great choice for patients with aging skin and the desire to avoid surgery. Sometimes called “the liquid facelift”, dermal fillers are safe and effective for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging and dry skin.
The treatment may involve various substances, but the procedure is very similar in its operation. The materials are injected into the skin to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles and add facial volume that has been lost due to the aging process or dramatic weight loss.
Hyaluronic acid has an important role to play in your skin as its chief internal moisturizer. This substance acts as a sponge within your skin cells, plumping them as it absorbs water. Its depletion leads to parched, cracked skin that readily forms wrinkles.
By adding hyaluronic acid into a gel that can be injected into your skin, we are replenishing your natural supplies and reversing the formation of wrinkles in a very safe, natural way. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers offer immediate results that can last up to one year in most cases. You will, however, need touch-ups, since the material will be gradually broken down by your body.
The many laser treatments we offer can also provide many of the same benefits as a facelift. Laser therapy can come in the form of intense pulsed light (IPL), the CO2 fractional laser, radiofrequency energy and more. Your exact skin issues and cosmetic goals will determine which type of treatment will work best for your needs.
Laser therapy can treat a number of issues you may be experiencing with your skin, including hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and fine lines, acne scarring, psoriasis and uneven skin tone. When you visit us for your initial consultation, we will provide you with the most appropriate treatment for your needs.
